For the past twenty years I have provided quality research to international commercial law firms in the City of London. Although my customers were primarily lawyers, I often dealt with their clients and other external contacts directly.
As a qualified knowledge and information professional* I have excellent organisation, communication and research skills. I aim to think in unusual ways and offer my clients help and approaches they haven’t considered. My skills set goes beyond what an average researcher can offer, and my track record is excellent.
I can use my understanding of various business functions to bridge communication gaps. Misunderstandings between different support services can be costly in time and working relationships. I have always worked closely with business development teams, in addition to offering advice to IT desks. I want to help you question and improve the way you think and communicate.
My academic background is a double masters in arts and humanities. This ensures that my knowledge and research skills in all areas are second to none.
Some examples of my work outside daily research include:
- provision of information and knowledge management content for a major publisher
- commissioning, producing, and co-ordinating content for a complete rewrite of company intranet
- identification and supply of content for various high profile blogs
- content editorial for various company newsletters
- presenting conference papers on innovation in commercial information services
- provision of new training notes for online database training. I also delivered the training. This led to a 50% increase of database usage
I am well-placed to provide content, news briefings and editorial to you.
